If this snowbot doesn’t melt your heart, nothing will. And who can look at these faux movie posters and not smile?
I asked Kevin to tell me a little about the poster project:
“The titles and images typically evolve together. Sometimes a title will spark an idea, but it rarely stays the same all the way to the end.
The posters were a natural result of my combined love for illustration and graphic design. I always find myself wanting to add text to my illustrations because I enjoy typefaces and layout so much, and posters are a good outlet for that.
Also, a lot of my favorite artists were great movie poster illustrators, such as Robert McGinnis. I also enjoy the work of Bernie Fuchs immensely, whose illustrations often appeared alongside text in magazines. So I find that illustration and text go together very naturally for me.”
Recently, Kevin created backgrounds for this Beijing Olympics animated commercial directed by Gorillaz creators Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. After watching the animation, go check out Kevin's blog to get a better look at his landscapes and beautifully rendered Bird’s Nest.
